Snapshots - Poem by Jacquie StewartHeimann

We’ve reached the twilight of our years
Outside the cold wind blows
But on the hearth a fire burns
And bathes us in its glow

Before us flickering flames do dance
They start to mesmerize
And in our minds the memories play
Before our dancing eyes

Playing with puppies in the yard
Baking with our mom
First day of school, the teacher’s smile
Dancing at the prom

Shyly getting our first kiss
The leaving of our friends
First steps of a little child
Alas, a marriage ends

Starting out at our first job
A loved one now has passed
Graduations, Wedding days
Picnics in the grass

A crying child in the dark
Scraped knees and broken arm
Hide & Seek with laughing friends
A day out at the farm

Arguments that fade with time
Vacations home to Maine
Birthday parties, study dates
Band practice in the rain

Time can dull some memories
Some fade until they’re gone
Others stay and grow anew
Like dew upon the dawn

We sigh and lean back in our chair
The memories survive
The things we hold close to our heart
The snapshots of our lives
